flash plugin? that would depend on what player i embed, right?

is there a list anyplace of alternate players that archive.org recommends, or has tested, or that users like?

thx!

flowplayer can play mp3 via both html5 and flash plugin and what was what we used prior to current jwplayer.

jplayer is another very good player out there you could take a look at.

i'm not inclined to use flowplayer, only because there must be some good reason archive.org stopped using it. Compatibility?

thx

age.
it started as flash-only, then flash-first, html5 second.
so we found jwplayer seemed to be a bit more cutting edge from our perspective at the time, with a similar very flexible API to flowplayer.

Ok. Do you guys support any of the tags/properties that the jwplayer supports?

thx!

ok, thx.

Feature Request:

i have a webpage containing many archive.org embeds (your current jwplayer).

if a visitor clicks on more than one play button, they ALL play. that's very undesirable.

one embed should STOP playing, when another embed is clicked. Maybe that's available option for jwplayer?

many players nowadays do this, for example soundcloud embeds.

thx!

i found a couple ways to do this with jwplayer, and maybe there are easier ways.

http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/forums/jw-player/setup-issues-and-embedding/32163/how-can-i-have-multiple-videos-on-a-page-with-only-playing-one-at-a-time/

http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/forums/jw-player/setup-issues-and-embedding/24844/multiple-jwplayers-on-page-but-only-allow-one-to-be-played-at-a-time/

(not sure if this is for jwplayer)
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4196979/only-allow-one-audio-element-to-play-at-a-time

However, i'm not a very good javascript programmer, and more important, i'd like this behavior to somehow be contained in the player, without any extra coding (or an option with a switch).

can you guys implement this into your own player?

also, is there any styling available for your current player, like colors or changing the greek-forum icon into some other image?

thx

and no, flash plugin is more depending on the browser and what *it* can do.

many newer browsers can play a mp3 via the relatively new html5 [audio] and [video] HTML tags. but older ones and still some newer ones cannot. so they rely on a browser plugin instead to playback the mp3. the most popular/obvious choice out there (eg: we and youtube does this) is to use the flash plugin since nearly all browsers have it.
